The Silence of God (AP Week)

This song gives me serious chill bumps every time I hear it. And it came into my life at the exact time it was needed and I still marvel at just how gorgeous, moving, and beautiful the lyrics are. Whenever I am asked my favorite song lyrics, these always come to mind first. When Love and Thunder (the CD this song is on) released I remember thinking AP couldn't get any better...and then The Far Country came out and dare I say it? I think I love it even more. It gives me high hopes for Resurrection Letters volume II.

I found this video someone made on youtube...I hope you'll take the time to listen to this song. It just might meet you where you are.

Megan asked about CS Lewis's influence on Andrew's writing, and since I can't, well, exactly remember much of CS Lewis's books, if anyone has read both On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness and the works of C.S. Lewis and can comment, it would mean a lot to both of us.

In any case, tomorrow I'll wrap up AP week with a short interview the man himself so graciously provided. And then this weekend, I'll contact winners.

Amy, did you know that Michael Card recorded a cover of The Silence of God on his last album, The Hidden Face of God? It's good, but not as good as Andrew's. But at least more people will be introduced to it.

Hi Stephen,

I didn't know that but thanks! That is cool. I hope that more people will be encouraged. Thanks for stopping by. Love your blog.

As many times as I've heard that song, it still brings tears to my eyes when I hear it. Yep - every time.

I must be living under a rock. Never knew the man was a musician and had not heard his song. It is a very sensitive song. Thanks, Cindi
